Colabar Concept

11 October-23 November, Maurer United Architects presented the Colabar concept in the Mediamatic Supermarkt. Instead of an exhibition, Maurer United Architects (MUA) launches in the Mediamatic Supermarkt a catering concept, Colabar. For years now MUA gets annoyed by the fact that in bars and restaurants the choice of the cola brand has already been made as a result of binding contracts. In this scheme the personal taste of the consumer gets ignored. In Colabar visitors choose from countless national and international brands of the seemingly identical product, cola.
